A group of cells with similar structure and a specific function are collectively called as tissues.
The human heart is the central part of the circulatory system. This muscular organ functions by pumping blood throughout the body.
The major types of tissues found in the human heart include:
- Connective tissue: It binds, connects, supports, and separate tissues or organs from each other.
- Epithelial tissue: It forms a protective covering all over the body including the internal organs.
- Muscle tissue: Heart is made up of a special type of muscle tissue termed as cardiac tissue. These are involuntary and striated muscles which help the heart to pump the blood throughout life.
- Nervous tissue: It controls and coordinates the pumping of the heart.
